Built by architects, for architects, Essential Architecture Manager is the reference implementation of the Essential Meta-Model (the open-source, framework- independent ontology for EA). Essential Architecture Manager consists of Essential Modeller and Essential Viewer, which separate the capture of information from the analysis to bring class-leading management and visualization of your enterprise knowledge.

A powerful multi-language framework for both the modeller and viewer, data import/export capabilities and a continuously-developed Essential Meta Model means that Essential can rapidly import your data from your existing sources, capture and manage more details of your enterprise architecture and dynamically produce views of your data, in your language. From managing regulations and compliance, strategic roadmaps, project and programme impact and progress, to detailed visualisation of the application and infrastructure, the over 500 meta classes in the Essential Meta Model provide the richest and extensible platform with which to capture and manage any aspects of knowledge about your enterprise.

Central to web-based Essential Viewer is the ability to rapidly provide insights and support for a wide range of stakeholders - in particular for those from the business and outside of IT and architecture - in formats and terms that make sense to them immediately. Real world application of Essential Architecture Manager combined with shared experience of the Essential Community continues to direct the development of Essential, focussed on an enhanced and powerful platform for managing your Enterprise Architecture.

Typically, the myriad systems & files associated with these activities are sent to various “Document Management Systems” [Museums of files?] or perhaps into a state-of-the-art “Cloud”.

Independent word processing, spreadsheet/DB, and graphic programs with little or at best file-level connectivity preclude referential integrity and true information leveraging.

Unlimited “Visual Portals” enable various business stakeholders & analysts to identify, manage & track complex interactions and fully leverage all vital enterprise information.

Goals, capabilities, business rules, processes, services, functions, associated risks, KPI’s, and metrics can all be easily linked and tracked. Information can be captured at the earliest useful point and referential integrity easily maintained & leveraged throughout the organisation. Security, access control, risk analysis, change notification, and change history management are all supported. Powerful reporting capabilities provide timely and intuitive insights into these vital enterprise resources. Dynamic dashboards can to setup to alert various stakeholders of changes or risks requiring their attention.

Automated web site creation allows sharing of selected repository views with various authorized stakeholder groups. Multiple intranet sites can be easily maintained for various groups.

Envision supports multiple frameworks [including PEAF, TOGAF/ArchiMate, Zachman, DODAF, and many others] and allows new views to be added as desired with no need for any vendor modifications, coding, or scripting changes. Linkages between models from any of these frameworks can be easily added as desired. More info: www.future-tech.com .

Bio

EAMS was created as a result of research over a decade in the attempt to solve the fact that manual diagrams tend to required too effort to be kept up-to-date over time, thus leading to the abandon of Enterprise Architecture projects.

Thus in EAMS all diagrams are generated on-the-fly based on information gathered from multiple repositories/tools, Manual diagramming is an external task that can be done in external modelling tools and then imported into EAMS. Thus EAMS does not provide you a graphical modelling interface as information input. Another aspect is that in EAMS all generated diagrams have a time slider, so one can see the contents of that diagram to change over time according to the planned or occurred changes. The result is that in EAMS, the faster the organization changes, the easier is to keep the Enterprise Architecture up-to-date, since it is fuelled by change plans, that can be  be expressed in a collection of models they be in BPMN, UML, Archimate, of in textual data (eg Excel) or both.

Pragmatica Innovations

Data Enabled Enterprise Modeler (DE2M)

Company Bio

Pragmatica Innovations (PI) creates more efficient and profitable enterprises.  Unlike companies that start by managing documents, improving processes or building software - our team begins with the foundations of these solutions.  We provide a complete understanding of the information that builds the requirements for successful and robust business capabilities.  Using the doctrine of pragmatism, our team applies architectural rigor to all its solutions.  It makes no sense to try to improve, using new expensive tools and software, what is fundamentally flawed – bad information.

Information is the tool of management decisions and world-class operations.  Our products and services are built based on how information is generated, transformed and shared in an organization.  Within every solution is the same persistent information built into a strong architecture that can survive organizational change, new requirements and products, even mergers and acquisitions.  New programs and procedures do not fail by themselves.  They fail because they are hastily built without a full understanding of what they are supposed to do.

With a solid understanding of the information that must be managed we can improve business management services, create collaborative environments, provide ways to visualize complex information that help make objective resource decisions and show how information becomes data and data becomes decisions.   We are confident because we have created a complete approach (the 42 way).  We designed and integrated frameworks (42 framework) to capture the information; developed a tool (DE2M) to model it both visually and within a database; pioneered methods to generate solution requirements from repeatable models and synthesized a complete business management model and platform (PrISM) that integrates the software investment you have already made.

We continuously strive for the most practical means to accomplish our work!  We work with each customer and partner to ensure their self-sufficiency - always including our unique ethical perspective on contributing to an environmentally sustainable future.

Full support to model and analyze all enterprise architecture frameworks with the power and extensibility of customizing attributes and adding new objects entirely. DE2M comes with many stencils to get you started and we also sell stencils for DODAF 1.5, DODAF 2.0 and more.

Make your data work for you with complete dashboard support and powerful business intelligence

Go from existing data to diagrams with the ability to import several formats of Microsoft Excel worksheets and other data and then use DE2M’s powerful and customizable Auto-Draw feature to meet the modeling methodology of frameworks or even fit for purpose modeling rules that you can define.
